Description:
Abstract:
This data set shows the locations of channel markers located in the bays around Assateague Island National Seashore.  The buoyus and markers are placed by Coast Guard.
Purpose:
The purpose of this data set is to map the location of channel markers. This file appears to have been crated to support personal watercraft management.  These markers are used to update and develop NOAA's nautical charts.
